Illustrator Coloring Tutorial by kheelan Illustrator Coloring Tutorial by kheelan
This is what works for me and I tried covering all my bases, but if I missed something...or confused the blazes outta you, let me know okay?
I relize the file size is huge, so sorry if that's a problem.

Think of it as my way of thanking you guys for sticking around so long [four years, geez]....if there's any other 'How-To's you might be interested in, let me know and I'll see if I can help or not.

Forgive any typos...knowing me I'm sure there's a few.
And I have no idea why I started drawing Darth Maul...weird whim I guess.

I don't understand how to subtract with the pathfinder. What tool do you use to trace the smaller shapes that you cut out?

Hello, I'm trying out this program for the first time. As I'm an architecture student I'v inputted a pdf of a plan and now I want to fill an area. This method doesn't work for me because I don't seem to be able to draw straight lines... Are there a tricks for that?
It actually comes down to this: there's a non-closed area that I want to give a certain color. I'm looking for a tool to select that area with straight lines (not necessarily horizontal of vertical) and to color it...
Can you please help me?

(I'm sorry for my poor English)
